Orchestra of Exiles is Oscar-nominated Josh Aronsonís tale of the man who saved Europe's premiere Jewish musicians from obliteration by the Nazis during WWII. In the early 1930's, as Hitler began firing Jewish musicians across Europe, he unwittingly created a unique opportunity - never before had so many top orchestra players been simultaneously jobless. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved these great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the great Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With courage, resourcefulness and an entourage of allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman forever changed and preserved the landscape of musical history.
